The Director of ALDA Antonella Valmorbida is among the 26 candidates for the election of the Board of CIVICUS. Mrs Valmorbida is part of the board of the alliance since 2012, when she was welcomed as a co-opted member.

In September, the voting members of CIVICUS will elect the 13 members of the new board, which will meet for the first time on 9-10 November 2013 in Johannesburg.

CIVICUS, World Alliance for Citizen Participation, is an international alliance dedicated to strengthening citizen action and civil society throughout the world. It has worked for nearly two decades especially in areas where participatory democracy and citizens’ freedom of association are threatened.

CIVICUS has a vision of a global community of active, engaged citizens committed to the creation of a more just and equitable world. This is based on the belief that the health of societies exists in direct proportion to the degree of balance between the state, the private sector and civil society. CIVICUS provides a focal point for knowledge-sharing, common interest representation, global institution-building and engagement among these disparate sectors. It acts as an advocate for citizen participation as an essential component of governance and democracy worldwide.
